Storm snow depth increased as we gained elevation and in the open vs in the trees.
Saw a few natural dry loose slides start with snow falling from trees that ran on the top layer of snow but didn't entrain much on the way.
Was able to easily kick off sluff while skinning and skiing 30-35 degree slopes above 3500ft. Below 3500 on the way down the snow steadily became heavier and wetter.
Saw some snowmobiles going down and up the upper bowl of West bowl without triggering anything. Some cornices could be seen on the top ridge.
